Château des Vigiers forms the centre-piece of a spectacular 27-hole golf course. The course opened in 1992 and was designed by Donald Steel, who is considered one of the very best “natural” golf course architects. Arranged in three 9-hole loops, giving three 18-hole combinations, our golf course was rated in the top ten courses in South West France.
Other golf facilities include a 6-hole academy course, a covered driving range, practice greens and bunkers as well as resident golf Professionals, making Vigiers an ideal place to begin or improve your game.
When asked by Golf World to name his favourite hole from his long career, Donald Steel chose the eighteenth at Château des Vigiers, with its dog-leg over a ridge for the second shot over the lake on to the green; finishing in front of the Château. It was subsequently described in Golf World under the heading “Vintage Finale”.
With the addition of the new 9-hole course, Vigier golfers now experience a much wider variety of playing conditions. The new course opened in early 2008, and integrates into the existing 18 hole course to form 3 new 9-hole courses: “La Vallée”, “Le Lac”, “Les Vignes”. Golfers can now play three different configurations of 18-holes, each with different challenges and gradients.
These training courses are aimed at players who hold a green card or an official handicap. You can subscribe to our group lessons or opt for individual lessons.

“We enjoyed our stay at Chateau des Vigiers. The Chateau is beautiful and the setting adds to a very relaxing stay. The staff were friendly, approachable and helpful. A little disappointed with the quality of the Brasserie and as a result we didn't try the Les Fresques restaurant. We would come again and would try the golf the next time”
“Very comfortable stay. Beautiful surroundings and buildings full of charm. Pool temperature was perfect but access to pool difficult as there was no handrail and first step was rather deep. We had difficulty with the lack of sign posts on the way to the hotel. ”
“Enjoyable and good for golf. The course is now in better shape. Restaurants and facilities are good. \nIt was high cost and worth it for a special occasion.!”
